Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has admitted that Christian Pulisic has been unfairly treated by him, as the American winger is set to quit the Stamford Bridge club.

Pulisic is already considering his exit at the club if he does not get game time as he is yet to start a Premier League game under new manager Tuchel his former Borussia Dortmund boss.

He was introduced in the closing stages of their 2-0 win over Everton and came off the bench six other times.

His only start came in the Blues’ 1-0 FA Cup win against Barnsley a month ago — and he was subbed off in that encounter.

Tuchel has stated that the player could be suffering due to their past relationship.

The manager said via SunSport:

"I can say nothing else but good things about him
"It is my responsibility and it is a bit unfair but I know what impact he can have in the last 20 or 30 minutes. He was a bit unlucky in the last few games. It isn't a lack of trust or quality, it is just that he will have to be patient.
"I have another guy who I would love to mention in Emerson [Palmieri], who suffers from bad decisions by me."

Chelsea stretched their unbeaten run to 11 games under Thomas Tuchel after dispatching Everton 2-0 at Stamford Bridge.

Having defeated Liverpool in midweek, the Blues had no problems going past the Toffees as they recorded back-to-back victories over the Merseysiders - a victory that propels them back into the top-four position.

The west London outfit went into the match on the back of a terrific run of form as they have not tasted defeat since the exit of Frank Lampard in January.

Meanwhile, earlier reported that desperate Liverpool fans have created a GoFundMe account to raise funds for the possible signing of Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe.

Only £65 donation has been received so far which is no way near the targeted world-record £250 million fee for the Frenchman.

Liverpool have continued to struggle in front of goal having only managed one at Anfield in their last six home matches.
